This post is the second in a series where we will be profiling the work of Village Enterprise and more specifically, following one of their team members, Whitney, as she travels to Africa and walks us through their amazing work.

Village Enterprise is an organization working to eradicate extreme poverty in East Africa through their innovative program that equips people with the skills and resources to establish their own small business. Whitney is the Marketing & Development intern, who will be spending the next month traveling around Uganda and taking us through the Village Enterprise program.

You can check out the first post here.

The real journey begins today! Whitney is arriving in Uganda this afternoon and will spend the next day getting settled and meeting the team working on the ground. On Saturday, she will begin the Vision Trip, which has her leading a group of donors through the entire business creation program.

The group will attend several meetings, training classes and business mentoring sessions, as well as visit some of the local businesses that were established through the program. Whitney will be capturing this two-week tour via the Village Enterprise Impact Page, giving you a complete look into the entire process.

New Impact Page

We are also excited to announce that Village Enterprise launched their Impact Page this morning. This Impact Page gives you an in-depth look into Village Enterprise and their unique approach to ending extreme poverty.

You can check out their Impact Page here:

Whitney has already taken her first photo of her trip (which also happens to be the first official photo uploaded using our Camera App). This is only the first of many, as she documents her work and travels through Uganda. Be sure to continue checking the Village Enterprise Impact Page for those updates.

Please show your support for this amazing organization by sharing their Impact Page with your friends.
